Leisurely 90 minute paddle boat ride down the Kalamazoo River and out to Lake Michigan, weather permitting. We saw on the top deck for a wonderful view of downtown Saugatuck, and all the lovely waterfront homes along the river. Bring sunscreen for a sunny day!...More

It was a rainy, cold, wet day. It was perfect! We were upstairs for a while taking great pictures, which are always better without so much sunlight. The downstairs was enclosed with a heater, so quite comfortable. Snacks and drinks were available. The narration during...More
